Title Project-based cooperative learning in accelerator science and technology education
Abstract Project-based learning uses a project to enable students to learn practical knowledge, often supplemented with some introductory lectures. (PrBL) has been employed at the Cockcroft Institute as part of their postgraduate programme in particle accelerator physics and engineering. 40 students have taken part in two schools. The students are made to work in groups to enable cooperative learning to further enhance learning. The outcome for these students is compared to a similar number of students taking conventional lecture based education and is shown to enhance the ability to apply knowledge.
